Whether you want to destroy sensitive files for good or just need to do a bit of PC maintenance, Deletor gives you a great deal of control over the erasing process. The installation is highly customizable, letting you create a personal desktop icon that will appear only when you log in to the PC. However, Deletor won't win any design awards, as the interface is cluttered with many icons and boxes. Nevertheless, we didn't have too much of a problem figuring out how to delete folders and files. The program lets you choose folders, subfolders, and files to erase by such parameters as keyword, file extension, creation date, and modified date. The program can automatically delete empty subfolders, and you can use its file-shredder feature to make sure your documents can't be recovered later. Because of the many options it gives you for eliminating unwanted files, we think Deletor is an excellent pick for a wide range of computer users.
Deletor helps you reduce the clutter in your disks and other storage media by deleting files and folders matching your criteria. The program can search multiple root folders and delete files according to their size, time properties, attributes, name and name patterns including wildcards. A shredding feature is also available to destroy sensitive documents and make them virtually impossible to recover.
Deletor supports filter packs to help you organize commonly used deletion specifications and quickly recall them by name. A log feature is also included to report operation progress and details in a window or a file. You can also preview operations to verify your settings and collect data such as the number of deleted files and the amount of recovered disk space.
Combine these features with the command line interface to the program and you can easily automate cleaning tasks by running Deletor in the foreground or background using batch files, shortcuts, scripts and schedulers.
Takes forever to delete files, and often doesn't delete them at all. Must give it the actual files, not a folder containing the files, so you have to shred the files in batches of 5 or 10, wait a minute for it to finally happen, repeat over and over and over and over... and then you delete the folder. Repeat for each folder, subfolder, etc.. Time wasting product...
